One of the best things about this time of the year is brands are dropping fresh new products. Makes you feel like a kid in the window of a candy store with your face pressed against the glass. If you’re like me, your motorcycle is never truly done, right? Always hunting for something new. How ‘bout you? Here’s some of the products that piqued my interest from the latest drop.

Arlen Ness MX Driver Chrome Foot Pegs (Product Number 440-1730)

The Arlen Ness team took the MX foot peg theme for street bikes and put their spin on it. Clean machining and design. Using rubber inserts for traction was smart. And, it's Arlen Ness.

Arlen Ness 7 Valve Black Forged Billet Rim, 21" x 3.50" (Product Number 420-3577)

Love the spokes on this one. Racy. Machined from radial forged 6061-T6 aluminum. I’d rock one.

Alpinestars Women's Stella Angeles Dark Rinse Denim Pants (Product Number 420-2774)

I’m a fan of no-frills, traditional, well-made jeans. Can’t hardly tell these have knee armor. Thumbs up there. Alpinestars jeans withstand wear-and-tear well.

Klock Werks The One Frenched Rear Fender (Product Number 440-0987)

All steel. Frenched-in the license plate holder smoothly. Would give a bagger back end a solid one-piece look.

Kuryakyn Bandito Throw-Over Saddlebags (Product Number 220-3689)

You could throw these things on at a moment’s notice. Size is ideal for a couple days on the road. Convenient saddlebag liners. Look sharp, too.

Kuryakyn Dillinger Satin Black Bar End Mirror (Product Number 510-1482)

I’m generally not a fan of bar end mirrors, but damn, I like these. Modern. Industrial. Well-done, Kuryakyn.

HJC RPHA-11 Carbon Black Full Face Helmet (Product Number 440-1863)

The CF on this helmet is sick. Bet ya this thing weighs next-to-nothing. Big vents so it should breathe well.

Legend Suspension High-Performance 49mm Front Suspension System (Product Number 510-2448)

Having your front end dialed makes such a huge difference and frequently stock internals suck. Mono-tube, dual-chambered fork damping cartridges improve the ride all the way around. Pre-load adjustable, too.

Mustang Brown Wide Tripper Solo Seat with Diamond Stitching and Backrest (510-1098)

I’ve been to Mustang’s factory before and respect how much they do by hand. Love the diamond-tuck and the shade of brown on this Wide Tripper. Little back support on road trips would be welcome. Get to the rally, you can yank it off easily.

Scorpion EXO Men's Phalanx Hi-Viz Jacket (Product Number 510-1016)

Hi-Viz, but subtly so, not in-your-face. Armor in elbows and shoulders gets two thumbs up. Would have gotten three if it had back armor, too. Good amount of adjustability, from snaps on the arm to tabs at the waist.

Givi Skid Plates (Product Number 440-2959)

Seeing this makes me wish I had the Africa Twin back. Drilled-out and ready for off-road duty. Givi goodness.

New Rage Cycles LED Fender Eliminator Kit (Product Number 420-2399)

I’d do this to a Triumph Bobber in a heartbeat. It is a bobber after all. Bright and tight.
